I'm a computer guy. I've been programming since the early 80s, starting with BASIC on a Commodore Pet. I've worked on HPUX, BSD and various other *nix as well as Windows since 3.0. My new work provides Apple laptops, but I've never learned to use a Mac. How hard can it be?

TBL: To Be Learned

  • Shortcuts
  • Good text editor (with regex search & replace) - not sure I need this, so I'll hold off

  1. I use vim and gvim for Mac. I have a friend that lives by emacs on his Mac. I used to use BBEdit "back in the day", but don't know how that's evolved over the last couple of years.

    Other useful keyboard shortcuts:
    Cmd-tab - switch apps
    Cmd-tilde - switch windows
    Cmd-{ and Cmd-} (also seen Cmd-shift-tab) - switch tabs in a window

    Screenshot key sequences are not intuitive, but worth learning - dead useful.

    Down with the mouse!
